In 1792, macarons began to gain fame when two Carmelite nuns, seeking asylum in Nancy during the French Revolution, baked and sold the macaron cookies in order to pay for their housing. These nuns became known as the “Macaron Sisters”. In these early stages, macarons were served without special flavors or fillings.
So as we are enjoying this delicious French Macarons, it is not about the taste, but the origin and their poignant history. I am willing to share this story with you because I love this beautifully made dessert and have learnt to make the Macarons.

It is an optional and personal preference to do a charity for the respect
of the origins,the Carmelites.For me,it is my pleasure to do something
for the Carmelites with my passion for the delicate Macarons.
